FEATURING  MATT GINSBERG-JAECKLE – June 28th marks the tenth anniversary of the US-backed coup in Honduras that ousted democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya and unleashed a new chapter of violence in the Central American nation.

The coup was backed by the Obama Administration and especially by then State-Secretary Hillary Clinton. Now, a decade later, Hondurans join waves of Central American refugees in fleeing the drug and gang violence that is plaguing their nation.
